University Medical Center has been struggling with its role as the "safety net" hospital for some years. The hospital is saddled with indigent care and emergency care that other hospitals will not do and has problems making money because of the administrative tangle of being a county operation. So what should happen with the hospital? Sell it? Subsidize it? Or even close it?
